Say CHEESE on Food Porn Friday

How many ways can you say cheese? How about 1,778 ways? No joke. According to Cheese.com, you can search their database containing 1778 kinds of cheese by names, by country of origin, by kind of milk that is used to produce it, or by texture.

April is National Grilled Cheese Month. Typically cheese such as Pepper Jack, Muenster, Sharp Cheddar, Provolone and American cheese are creamy yet great for melting between two slices of bread. However, that does not stop you from combining different types of cheese and creating your own innovative cheesy sandwich concoction.

Check out these mouthwatering grilled cheese sandwiches from The California Milk Advisory Board. Today’s tasty features include The Havana, The Tuscan, and The REAL Californian grilled cheese sandwiches. The California Milk Advisory Board (CMAB), an instrumentality of the California Department of Food and Agriculture, is funded by the state’s more than 1300 dairy families. As we honor National Grilled Cheese Month, prepare a delightful melt in your mouth sandwich of warm, gooey, cheesy goodness.

Happy #FoodPornFriday

Pecan-Crusted Chicken on Food Porn Friday

I remember growing up how excited I was to visit my grandfather and get my hands on a bushel of those ginormous pecans that fell from his pecan trees. Those long brown shells held some of the biggest, sweetest and meatiest pecans I ever tasted. Nowadays, I have not found any pecans that fit the size or caliber of my memories of those Ninja pecans my grandfather grew.

So today, on Food Porn Friday, as we celebrate National Pecan Day, which by the way has been celebrated on April 14 since 1996, I decided to feature this healthy recipe, Pecan-Crusted Chicken from EatingWell Magazine. This recipe coats tender chicken breasts with buttery pecans flavored with spicy chipotle and zesty orange.

This recipe only takes 30 minutes to prepare and is ready in 30 minutes. In the picture, it is served with spinach salad. Depending on your tastes, you can modify a number of certain ingredients to your choosing. What a wickedly delicious way to eat a healthy meal with only 270 calories per serving.

Today is Food Porn Friday and we are celebrating the good ole potato. National Tater Day is observed annually on March 31. Tater Day started way back in the early 1840s with the trading and selling of sweet potatoes. It is the oldest continuous trade day in the United States.

According to the International Potato Center, there are more than 4,000 varieties of native potatoes, mostly found in the Andes. There are also over 180 wild potato species, although too bitter to eat, their important biodiversity includes natural resistances to pests, diseases, and climatic conditions.

Here’s an easy yummy recipe, Cheesy Bacon-Tater Tot Pie recipe, courtesy of the Food Network Kitchen that takes only 45 minutes to prepare and serves 8. All you need are a few simple ingredients.

Would you believe today is National Chocolate Covered Raisin Day? That’s right! 

The historical origins of the chocolate covered raisin are unknown. They have a reputation in many countries of being food that is eaten in movie theaters. Most early references tend to originate from the Germanic-speaking regions of Europe.

In some countries, chocolate covered raisins are also known as Raisinets, which is the earliest and one of the most popular brands of the product, currently made by Nestlé. Raisinets are the second largest selling candy in United States history.

Supermarket chains also sell them in bags, and they were traditionally sold by weight, from jars, in candy stores. The main ingredients in this confectionery are raisins, milk chocolate, dark chocolate or white chocolate.

So today, on Food Porn Friday, whether you are a fan of Sun-Maid, Kirkland, Nestlé or any other chocolaty-covered raisiny treat that you can snack on any time of the day, celebrate the melt in your mouth decadence of National Chocolate Covered Raisins Day!

We’re going green on St. Patrick’s Day and not green with envy either! The Feast of Saint Patrick is a cultural and religious celebration held on March 17th, the traditional date of the death of Saint Patrick (c. AD 385–461), the foremost patron saint of Ireland.

Today’s St Patrick’s Day celebrations generally involve public parades, festivals, wearing green attire or shamrocks, formal gatherings, banquets or dances. St Patrick’s Day was greatly influenced by the Irish diaspora, especially in North America.

Since this is Food Porn Friday, we are going to feature a green-licious beverage, that symbolizes the luck of the Irish…Green Beer!

Happy St. Partick’s Day on Food Porn Friday
